FKA Twigs Reveals She Broke Down Over Racist Abuse To Dying Fan
Singer shares heartbreak after terminally ill woman was trolled...
FKA Twigs has spoken out before on the racist abuse she has received since her relationship with Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson became public knowledge.
But now the pop star has revealed that it was the moment that trolls turned their attentions to a terminally ill fan that caused her to finally lose it.
Speaking to the Sunday Times Magazine, the 27-year-old explained that nasty trolls pounced when a friend of the fan posted a snap of Twigs with his pal online.
"They all started attacking her. Within 20 seconds it was just like n****r, monkey, ugly, die b***h, all this stuff on his feed.
"It broke my heart... this lady who is really sick and is probably going to die."
And she shared her thoughts on being mixed-race in modern Britain.
She said her stepdad told her: "Sometimes people are going to treat you differently because of the colour of your skin.
"Sometimes you're going to have to work 10 times harder than somebody else to get the same appreciation, but never use it as an excuse. I agree with that."
She also revealed that she's been robbed on the street in East London, saying: "I was mugged outside the yoga studio."
And she admits she doesn't get out much, despite living in a city famous for its nightlife.
"I'm not the kind of person who goes to an exhibition on a Thursday night just because everyone is. It's so bad to be basic."
